Finn Juhl was a pioneer in Danish design. In 1945 he designed this fantastic armchair, which was one of the first to break with tradition by freeing the seat and back from the frame. The result was an easy, elegant and tantalising expression that came to characterise Finn Juhl and make him world famous as an unrivalled designer.
The 45 Chair is an example of high quality craftsmanship with carefully selected wood and upholstered in either leather or fabric.
As one of the leading figures in twentieth century furniture design, Finn Juhl is responsible for introducing North America to the Danish Modern movement through his work on the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. Originally trained as an architect, he began creating furniture for himself in the 1930's and soon gained widespread recognition for his organic forms and expressive treatment of wood, often taking the material past the limits of what was thought possible. Thinking with the mindset of a sculptor, his ambition was to design furniture with movement and life.
